SOLARAID

We are transforming lives with solar lights to eradicate the kerosene lamp from Africa

Charity Registration No. 1115960

Story

In 2012 SolarAid, the charity I work for, set a scary goal to eradicate the kerosene lamp from Africa by 2020.

So I set a scary goal too and entered my did my first triathlon in 2013 starting with a 750 m open water swim even though I could hardly swim a length!

Two years on and SolarAid is still set on its goal and I am still doing triathlons. Every one I do reminds me that having a goal helps us achieve things we didn't think possible.

For every £3 SolarAid receives it sells a solar light at a fair market price in rural parts of Africa so families no longer have to use toxic kerosene lamps. Genius.

Inspire me (and SolarAid) to continue to 2020. Thanks
